    Thank you for the kind words! The Esplanade (the two spiky domes that cover a 2000 seat concert hall and a 1600 seat theatre) wasn't initially a big hit with local residents, but over the years, it's become an icon of Singapore's skyline, but is more often viewed from the other side: this view, on the 5th floor terrace, shows off the reverse angle nicely, although I forgot sunscreen and have sunburn on my neck as a memento: it's so easy to get caught up in the moment worrying over anyone walking through the picture and creating an unwanted half-frame stitch!

    Interesting gigapan. I like the texture on the buildings to the right and shapes of the buildings in the skyline. thanks :)

    if you click on Stitcher Notes, you get an FOV of 165.7 degrees wide and 29.07 degrees tall; on the Gigapan itself, the FOV vertically was 10.8 degrees, which is calculated from the Gigapan setup so the horizontal overlap can be set for the system.

    This is very impressive. What FOV (Field of View) did you use with your Canon G10? Thanks.
